Pornography is explicit, sexual material created to sexually arouse the viewer. Pornography takes many forms, including adult films, photography, books, art, and video games. Sexually suggestive entertainment such as striptease and burlesque shows are not deemed to be pornography.
The pornographic industry generates around $100 billion in global revenue every year. It also employs thousands of performers and others, including production staff.
Pornography is often abbreviated informally to either porn or porno.
